Apple Is it an indication of Steve Jobs' (in)famous strive for perfection, or just stupid bone-headedness? The white variant of the iPhone 4 was first delayed for a few weeks, but those few weeks became 'end of the year'. Now we know why: the manufacturers Apple employs are apparently having issues matching the shades of white of the various components. This anecdote ties in nicely with a very interesting interview with John Sculley about Steve Jobs' ways of doing business.

Yeah, if they sell 20-30% more of it because it looks great then who cares if it's delayed?

Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 is a very comfortable keyboard with shitty quality.

The Unicomp keyboards are probably nice to. And with better quality.

The Razer Blackwidow is mechanical to.

You can probably get a Sun keyboard from Ebay to.
